Fortuna Dusseldorf – Borussia M’gladbach
Fortuna Dusseldorf hosts Borussia M’gladbach at the Merkur Spiel-Arena in a game from the 22th round of the Bundesliga. We believe that this fixture might be really competitive, so we are going to take a look at it.
For Fortuna Dusseldorf it’s not an easy situation as they are really close to the relegation zone, being 16th with 17 points. They have won just four games since the beginning of the campaign, so that’s something they shall improve as performance in order to survive.
Fortuna Dusseldorf are without a victory in their last four matches, beating Union Berlin for their last win. Since then they have won just two points in these four games. Last week Uwe Rosler’s team visited Wolfsburg at the Volkswagen Arena and won a point with a 1-1 win. Matthias Zimmermann scored Fortuna’s only goal in the game, but in the beginning of the second half Renato Steffen equalised for the Wolves.
Uwe Rosler has some problems before this game. Andre Hoffmann is suspended for the next game, while Tim Wiesner, Kenan Karaman and Dawid Kownacki are injured.
For Borussia M’gladbach qualifying for the Champions League is the top priority right now. So far they are moving well, being 4th in the standings with 39 points. Losing just once in their last five matches – against Schalke 04, Borussia M’gladbach are performing in a confident way at the moment.
In their last game Marco Rose’s team visited RB Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena and won a point after a 2-2 draw. Borussia actually had two goals advantage after the strikes of Alassane Plea and Jonas Hofmann, but in the second half the Red Bulls scored twice and won a point.
That’s what we had to say about the Bundesliga game between Fortuna Dusseldorf and Borussia M’gladbach on Saturday. Can the visitors make another step towards a return to the Champions League?
